Wing$ translation of lyrics

Also known as Can you take me far away lyrics.

English translation of Wing$ by Macklemore
Cause I wanted to be like Mike, right
Wanted to be him,
I wanted to be that guy, I wanted to touch the rim
I wanted to be cool, and I wanted to fit in,
I wanted what he had, America, it begins
 
I want to fly
Can you take me far away?
Give me a star to reach for
Tell me what it takes
And Ill go so high
Ill go so high
My feet wont touch the ground
Just stitch my wings
And pull the strings
I bought these dreams
That all fall down
 
We want what we cant have, commodity makes us want it
So expensive, damn, I just got to flaunt it
Got to show 'em, so exclusive, this that new shit
A hundred dollars for a pair of shoes I would never hoop in
Look at me, look at me, Im a cool kid
Im an individual, yeah, but Im part of a movement
My movement told me be a consumer and I consumed it
They told me to just do it, I listened to what that swoosh said
Look at what that swoosh did
See it consumed my thoughts
Are you stupid, dont crease 'em, just leave 'em in that box
Strangled by these laces, laces I can barely talk
Thats my air bubble and Im lost if it pops
We are what we wear, we wear what we are
But see I look inside the mirror and think Phil Knight tricked us all
Will I stand for change or stay in my box
These Nikes help me define me, but Im trying to take mine off
 
I want to fly
Can you take me far away?
Give me a star to reach for
Tell me what it takes
And Ill go so high
Ill go so high
My feet wont touch the ground
Just stitch my wings
And pull the strings
I bought these dreams
That all fall down
 
They started out with what I wear to school
That first day, like these are what make you cool
And this pair, this would be my parachute
So much more than just a pair of shoes
Nah, this is what I am
What I wore, this is the source of my youth
This dream that they sold to you
For a hundred dollars and some change
Consumption is in the veins
And now I see its just another pair of shoes
